Wise words from the greatest rock star EVER.
Anyone who has ever listened to Jimi Hendrix play his electric guitar knows that he was ahead of his time. There was always something spiritual about his concerts and when he would perform on stage.
The following Jimi Hendrix had, and still has today, is arguably one of the biggest musical artist followings in history; so big in fact that it would make sense to call it the Church of Jimi Hendrix. With his songs preaching love, harmony, and peace, we can't help but think something like this could be possible. Especially since he was once quoted as saying, "Music is my religion."
Music was so central to Hendrix's life that he dedicated most (if not all) of his time bringing real, beautiful music to the world. Maybe it was the fact that LSD and Woodstock were prominent at that time, or maybe it was just Hendrix sharing his personal beliefs through his music and his interviews, but there was something about his words and lyrics that made us believe in love and living a free, carefree life again.
He taught us that we don't have to impress everyone to make a difference in the world. He believed that success and happiness comes from within, and to make it to the top you have to do what feels right to YOU ... not what everyone else says you should do.
More than just his music, however, Jimi Hendrix's quotes are all about finding balance in life and good vibes.
Hendrix believed without a doubt that true, unconditional love would lead to peace in the world. He wanted to live in a world that didn't exploit its citizen, a world that didn't hold power above everything else; a place where life could be enjoyed in the moment, not when it was all over.
In today's world, we can only hope to be as open to love and peace as Hendrix was.
We may not have him here anymore, but we will always have his music and his words to remind us how important and vital love really is, no matter who you are or what you believe in.
The quotes below are about more than love, but we can all agree that we can take a few notes from Jimi Hendrix on how to live our lives to the fullest!
